International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89($67) Ripe, lower-toned aromas of peach, honey and earth. Suave and juicy in the mouth, with a chewy, tactile texture; a step up in intensity and freshness from the Chenevottes. This sweet, rich wine can be enjoyed now for its fresh fruit or held for a couple of years.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 2008
Wine Spectator | Rating: 92A straight, linear style, yet with plenty of lime-inflected apple, pear and mineral flavors. This expands on the palate, gaining richness and ending with a toasty aftertaste. Beautifully articulated thanks to the juicy acidity.Author: Bruce Sanderson
Burghound | Rating: 91An expressive and relatively high-toned nose of green fruit, pear and intense citrus blossom aromas merge into beautifully detailed, stony and wonderfully precise middle weight flavors that explode on the bone dry, balanced and strikingly persistent finish. The Baudines is a lovely wine but there is another dimension here.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 3rd Quarter, 2008
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Very clean but with weight, too. Rich yet clean - no heaviness. Chewy. Needs quite a bit of time, but this is very pure, superior white burgundy by any standard.Author: Jancis RobinsonIssue: 01/30/2008
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
